why arteries are deeply placed?????????
Asked by | 16th May, 2008, 03:31: PM
Arteries work under high pressure, since they have to bring blood to organs and limbs.
They are placed deep in the body so that in case of a wound or injury, the arteries are not cut. Otherwise large amount of blood will be lost, especially the blood carrying large amounts of oxygen.
In case of a superficial wound, the blood that is lost is at low pressure, from the veins.
